Today was the first day of tech rehearsals for Treasure Island. Man, this show has got it all: gun fighting, sword fighting, pirates, trap doors, rigging, mast with working sails and flag, rum, ropes, pulleys, cannons, and treasure!
Also today we saw The Habit of Art with Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings, and Frances de le Tour at the National Theatre. It was fantastic! It gave a surprisingly accurate account of a pre-tech week rehearsal and even had a Milwaukee reference in there.
